Manual 365/4 Load Bearing

There are pros and cons with working all over the place, the pros; an ever changing landscape, discovering little hidden away gems as you wander from the beaten trails of the motorway network and trunk roads. The cons; Leaving at 6am and driving for the majority of the 140 mile journey in the dark and then leaving at 4pm and doing the return trip… In the dark, this will improve I know, with time. I managed to grab a few shots of the QE2 Bridge across the Thames on my way out, the light was not great but I like the shapes created by the bridges’ tension cables.

I have decided that I’m not going to enter the settings as before on my blogs from now on, I will supply a link to a Flickr album containing the images which will have all of the info there, you can find that album here

Tomorrow could well be more productive, early start (Yawn) but a stop off in Gloucester then back across to Erith via the view across Gloucester from near The Air Balloon pub, lets hope for some lively skies, The Cotswolds and maybe a trip into London tomorrow night… Maybe…

Thanks for viewing my blog and the usual apply, likes, comments and shares appreciated

I take all of my pictures in both Jpeg and RAW format. If anyone would like to improve any of them let me know and in most cases I will supply them with the file.

More of my photos are here

And I Tweet here

And I’m also going to give a shout out to a little app I have had for a while, Elements Of Photography. It’s great for giving you the basics and pushing you forward in your picture taking and giving you great examples of how things work. I got it for free on my Kindle but I see they’re now charging £1.99 in the app store. On IOS it’s free but contains in app purchases. Still worth the money in my mind! Their web site is here

And while I’m at it, I’m an avid podcast listener, (I need something to listen to on those long journeys) and have discovered TWiP, a weekly podcast regarding all things photo. I have only listened to two episodes so far but they have been entertaining and informative, you can find them here


And I’m going to try and thinks of a better link description other than here
